Crawler to Toddler

 At no other time in our lives do we so rapidly change the way we physically use our bodies as the period between birth and 2 years old.  As a result in early childhood we frequently fall over, bang our heads and falloff things; most children appear to bounce back but repeated falls combined with rapid growth can cause the developing bones to move out of place, muscle to imbalance and the nervous system to be compromised in its function - the result is a child that may feel physical discomfort and develop more slowly that would be expected.

Common indicators that your toddler may be uneven in their body::
the child's head does not turn equally to both sides,
disturbed sleep patterns,
they are slow to sit, crawl or stand,
the get easily frustrated with physical activities,
they are fussy eaters.

Slow walker
Our son Bobby did not crawl and was only just standing up at 2 ½ years old.  We noticed he always stood more on one leg than the other and when sitting often still fell over to one side.  My GP had suggested that Bobby may be autistic but had not done any tests or referred us to a consultant   My health visitor suggested I saw a chiropractor and Tracy came highly recommended by a friend. 
Tracy's examination of Bobby was very thorough testing his physical skills,his speech and understanding and she set our minds at rest that he compared well this the 'normals for his age', except in the use of his legs.  We were impressed that Tracy made these test into a game so Bobby was not stressed by them.  Tracy treated him once a week for 5 weeks and gave us exercise games to do at home.  After each treatment we saw an improvement and by the end of 5 weeks Bobby was starting to run!  We still return to Tracy every 3 months for a check up even though it is over an hours drive, what she has helped Bobby achieve is worth every minute on the M25 and more.

Teeth Grinder
Tracy's treatment was very helpful with my four year old son Max. He had been grinding his teeth for some time and the length and severity of these episodes were getting worse, I mentioned this in passing to Tracy (when she was treating me, as I thought it would be more a problem for the dentist.) She managed to persuade Max, who is not the most co-operative of patients, into let her adjust his jaw and bones in his head. The transformation was immediate, the grinding stopped entirely.
I understand that had I gone to the dentist with this problem Max may well have been fitted with a teeth guard, not very nice for just a little boy. Thanks Tracy.

Why should they see a chiropractor if they seem OK?
Rarely nowadays to parents wait for their child to have painful tooth ache before seeing a dentist.  Most parents do not think twice about taking their children for regular dental check ups – the principal being that teeth should be checked every 6 months to identify any potential problems before they become serious.  When you think that children only use their teeth to eat, yet they use their spine constantly; every time they sit, run, stand, play, jump and even sleep.  Surely it makes sense to have regular check ups to this vital structure.
